It’s no secret that coatings last longer and perform better on a clean surface. Most cleaning methods, however, cause problems of their own. Dry blasting shatters the rust and coating on the surface and embeds abrasive contaminants to become stuck into the roughened surface. Wet abrasive blasting with untreated water causes flash rust. Other salt removers only remove a few salts, while replacing them with other salts and leaving behind an acidic, conductive residue. With HoldTight®, however, there are NO contaminants, NO flash rust, and NO residue or film.
Extend the life of nearly any coating with HoldTight® 102—the ultimate surface
prep solution. Reduce the costs of maintenance, repainting, and surface
preparation by using the industry’s most trusted salt remover and flash
HoldTight® is a wet blasting additive that decreases the water’s surface tension, allowing it to get into the pores of the surface and remove ALL contamination, including salts, acids, abrasives, light oils, and greases. HoldTight® leaves behind zero unwanted residue, and evaporates with the water, providing a surface that is thoroughly clean and ready for a tightly adhered coating bond for up to 72 hours.
Save time and money with HT 365™, a new thin film coating that can be applied to blasted surfaces, preserving the blast and preventing flash rust and corrosion for up to one year. HT 365™ can be applied to untreated surfaces or those that have been treated with HoldTight® 102. By preserving the blast for up to one year, HT 365™ allows your crew to work with maximum efficiency, giving you peace of mind that your surface is properly prepped for a quality coating - even if the project cannot be completed right away.This new product is easily applied by brush, spray or dipping and easily removed by high pressure washing with HoldTight® 102-treated water.
Get the very best performance out of HoldTight® 102 with our new water quality
test kit. Although most potable water works well with HoldTight® 102,
this kit can be used to verify water quality and identify any potential
water problems that may interfere with the performance of HoldTight®
102. Our water quality test kit measures pH levels, Water hardness,
Ensure the superior results you’ve come to expect from HoldTight® 102 with every single application. Contact HoldTight® Solutions today to get your water quality test kit.
The DeFelsko PosiTector SST (soluble salt tester) is a sophisticated measuring
device for surface ions, supplied to spec for HoldTight®. This user-friendly
technology is versatile. It can be employed both before using HoldTight®
102 to determine the extent of surface contamination and after blasting/rinsing
with HoldTight® 102-treated water to measure the cleanliness of the
The DeFelsko PosiTector SST is designed to make these measurements easy to obtain and record. Using this device expedites testing, verifies the quantity of ions on the surface, and allows for proper coating application on thoroughly cleaned steel. This new, innovative technology will improve efficiency and timeliness of testing, compared to currently available testing equipment. The DeFelsko PosiTector SST is designed to meet applicable International Standard Organization (ISO) standards on conductivity before a coating is applied.
